Beatlemaniacs Can Celebrate at ‘Pepperland’
Beatlemaniacs can celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Fab Four’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album at today’s noon dedication of “Pepperland” in Griffith Park. That’s right, Pepperland.
Beatles fans intent on having a West Coast version of the “Strawberry Fields” garden in New York City’s Central Park have planted trees and shrubs in a four-acre plot of land next to the Griffith Park merry-go-round. Today, that plot will be christened “Pepperland.”
The celebration will include the ceremonial planting of a final tree, and the unveiling of a stone monument to the Liverpudlians. The “Sgt. Pepper’s” album debuted 20 years ago Monday.
